Ms HALL (ShortlandOpposition Whip) (16:03): On Wednesday last week I had a group of young people come to the office and receive their Young Sporting Champions grants. This is a fantastic program that sees young people assisted when they compete at state and national level. Those that received Young Sporting Champion grants were: Christine Connell from Warners Bay, for swimming; Dylan Gisby from Eleebana, also for swimming; Elisa Gisby, for swimming; Amelia Gellatly from Valentine, for swimming; Jye Pastourmoglou for lifesaving; Jesse Smith for lifesaving also; Mitchell Meares for tenpin bowling in the Special Olympics; Jack Curran from Caves Beach, for swimming; Isabelle Field from Belmont, for swimming; Piper Lovett from Marks Point, for netball; Sarah Pickering from Belmont North, for athletics; and Jessica Potts from Valentine, for touch football.

The swimmers are all from the swimming club at Warners Bay. Unfortunately, at the same time as this presentation was taking place, one of the other young swimmers from the club was hit by a car and lost her life crossing the road near Warners Bay Public School. I would like to put on the record my support for putting in place lights to make that crossing safer for young people. (Time expired)
